Pay As You Go Lighting and Landscape Maintenance Contracts

Aug 8, 2008
Pay-as-you-go lighting and landscaping maintenance contracts combine the personalized responsiveness of typical service contracts with pay-as-you-go convenience. These lighting and landscape maintenance contracts are the most affordable and efficient way to protect your investment in landscape lighting services. Rather than costing a monthly fee like other lighting and landscape maintenance contracts, our services only generate an invoice when we visit your property. You can count on personalized, routine evaluation of the state of your system and only pay 1-4 times a year depending on the size of your system and the required number of visits to ensure its operability. The convenience and cost effectiveness of lighting and landscape maintenance contracts make them a value no customer should neglect to give him or herself.

Routine maintenance and regular checks bring peace of mind to clients with lighting and landscape maintenance contracts. They establish assurance that a specialist will check every element of their lighting system with sufficient frequency throughout the year to maintain optimal performance and make minor adjustments if necessary to prevent unexpected system failure. The size of your lighting system determines the frequency of these system checks.

Smaller systems generally require only one or two visits a year to check connections, wear and tear of fixtures and wiring, and tree growth that can affect the position and operability of lights installed in branches and on the sides of trunks. Typically, we perform these checks for our clients in very early spring and right before the party season. If the assessment determines that all is well, we invoice the client only for the cost of the trip and the time required to look over the system. Smaller lighting systems on landscape maintenance contracts may pay as little as $55.00 per visit once or twice a year. Larger systems under lighting and lighting and landscape maintenance contracts may pay $150.00-$200.00 depending on the time it takes to go through the system.

Neglecting to invest this nominal fee in frequent checks often results in missing the warning signs that normally precede major system failure. Tree growth, adverse weather conditions, and human activity throughout the property can skew fixtures to throw off the angle of the lighting and also cause minor damages that become mission critical when compounded by normal wear and tear. Lighting and landscape maintenance contracts ensure that each component of the system is operating safely with minimal likelihood of electrical failure or shock. They also ensure that equipment covered by your lighting and landscape maintenance contract is performing according to industry and regulatory standards and producing the desirable levels of lighting that it is intended to deliver. In our service agreements, we avoid double billing our lighting and landscape maintenance contract services by rebating the onsite fee toward the cost of any repair the situation requires us to undertake. This policy ensures that a person pays only for the trip and time if there is no problem, and only for a solution to a genuine problem in the form of a timely and necessary repair.

The unique policies and procedures that distinguish pay as you go lighting and landscape maintenance contracts are a reflection of core company values that stress systematic planning and personal consulting services in the creation of personalized, aesthetic and functional lighting systems. Look for these core values in the mission statement and the demeanor of any prospective landscape lighting contractor before you spend any money. Once you do spend money, protect your investment at a marginal cost to ensure that it continues to produce the very best lighting effects possible throughout the year, for years to come.
